I thought I’d theme this little feature in tribute to the 100th year anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic this weekend. As well as remembering those who lost their lives on the ship’s ill-fated maiden voyage, I know many will also be heading towards the cinema to experience James Cameron’s epic love story in 3d [for the record, I’m still refusing to see it unless they change the ending – let him share the damn door Rose!].
I thought I’d throw a little focus to many people’s favourite tragic lovers Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater/Dawson, as portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
Rose: Marchesa gown, All Saints wrap cardigan, Modcloth heels, Halston maxi skirt, ‘Heart of the Ocean’ replica
I’ve given the couple a more modern twist with these looks. For Rose, the opulence from her upper class background remains, with a beaded Marchesa gown, but I’ve also taken some inspiration from her various wraps and longer skirts throughout the movie with the other pieces. Jack’s look was pretty easy. Smart, simple, with a touch of working class and not forgetting his trouser braces. And of course, a replica of ‘The Heart of the Ocean’.
Keep on wishing…
